IMO Its how one uses the wheel to compliment the rest of trucks theme. Mine on 18/17's looks and runs just as aggressive than some street Ram on 20" plus size rims - Factual? Not sure but that how i feel in my mind lol. Also i tend to see my rims on only lifted of leveled trucks not with a lowered stance.

I just posted these in a couple of threads but I got them on and put my stocker tires back on. I have an ST 4x4 with the smaller engine so the 17's work great. The biggest reason why I didn't want to go 20's is the tire price to change them back out when you need to. 17's to 20's are a HUGE difference in price and I like the extra bounce that the tire gives vs the lower profile of the 20's in most cases. I've had cars and trucks with oversized rims and the low pro feel always rides WAY harder in my opinion.

Oh and its a truck, I don't need a whole lot of lateral grip for cornering as thats what my motorcycle is for!

BTW, I just got the wheels, TPMS, lug kit, and hub rings for $435 shipped to my door by discount tire.

bombadillo, did you weight those wheels before you mounted them? I'd love to know what one weighs....there's not weight on their site for it, those are the vision warriors right?

I didn't weigh them but they weren't any heavier than the factory steelies. If I get one off, I'll try and weight them.

I may be looking for wheels to mount slicks on like some others on the forum, and those are a heck of a bargain and look really nice, that's why I was wondering on the weight.

I wouldn't call them light but they're not really all that heavy either. For wheels I'd say they were about average if there is one. I had some really light cragar wheels for my MT ET Streets on a mustang I had and those were WAY lighter than these although they were 16's too.
